Michael Briguglio, AD Chairperson said that Alternattiva Demokratika – The Green Party endorses the support of the Maltese Government to the creation of a Palestinian state. “AD has consistently been in favour of a two-state solution and peace between Israel and Palestine”.
Prof. Arnold Cassola, AD spokesperson on EU and International Affairs, stated: “The Maltese government would show a sense of decisive leadership by joining countries such as EU member states Belgium, Cyprus, Ireland, Portugal, Spain and Sweden in supporting Palestine’s demand for official statehood recognition at a United Nations level. The Maltese government would be on the right sight of history and of justice because the Palestinian people cannot and should not be deprived of their state. The “Two states, two peoples” formula is the right and just solution for the future, with the Israeli and Palestinian people living in peace as neighbours within safe borders, in mutual respect of each other”.
